BIO
Josh Booty, a former first round pick and World Series Champion with the Florida Marlins, and also selected in the NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks, is one of the most remarkable two-sport athletes of our time. One of the most prolific high school passers ever, Bill Walsh labeled him the greatest high school QB of all-time, as he was named to the Dick Butkus National High School All-Time Team alongside only Joe Namath and John Elway. He was also a Parade Magazine Player of the Year in both Football and Baseball – the only athlete ever to do so.

He made it to the major leagues by 20 in ’94, won a W.S. in ’97, and went to LSU to play QB in 2000 under Nick Saban, before making it to the NFL. Two of his brothers also played in the NFL, John David most recently after starring at USC.

Josh has worked with major media networks such as ESPN, FOX Sports, MLB Network, and CBS Sports. He currently is a co-host on “The Franchise” on SBNation Radio.
